Shell Necklaces

These pieces of shells I have had for a couple of years and have been dying to make necklaces out of them.  They are smooth like sea glass but with the beautiful texture and pattern of shells.  I will be making a bunch soon and will post a link for them on Etsy.

If you want to make your own:

You will need:
Sheet Metal
Metal Cutting Tool
Sand Paper
Cut your desired shape and size of metal.  If you want you can add textures into your metal at this point.
Squeeze a very small amount of glue onto the metal and slide carefully over shell.  Hold tight for 60 seconds.
Once the glue dries (may take several minutes depending on your glue choice) you can sand different designs in the metal.
Add chain and you have a necklace!
